There's a paper by Paul Sereno et al in the 13 November Science, and a
perspective by Tom who couldn't say more before the embargo. The Science
web site has the Sereno paper availalbe for free access at
http://www.sciencemag.org/content/current/. I'm not sure if Tom's
perspective is available to nonsubscribers, but it comes with nice drawings
of the critter, Suchomimus, which is a spinosaur related to Barynoyx but
larger and more complete.
